The Washington Post has reported that investigators have recovered a pistol that may have been privately-owned and used by one of the Marines killed in a brazan attack on Chattanooga military installations last Thursday.
Marines are not authorized to carry private firearms at the military installation, and are generally prohibited from carrying firearms of any kind on U.S. bases, though there is growing support to arm servicemembers following the attacks of July 16.
According to the Washington Post, investigators are working to determine whether the weapon was used to shoot at or wound gunman Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez during the attack.
Abdulazeez carried a version of the AK-47, a Smith & Wesson pistol and an Saiga-12 semiautomatic shotgun, according to the Post's sources.
